There is no one thing that defines the culture of Woking. It’s the combination of the wonderful course, the members, the Clubhouse, the history; there is just something unique about playing and building relationships here. Perhaps that is why, over recent years, we have doubled the number of category 1 golfers, perhaps it is why we now have a younger membership than we have ever had, perhaps that is why there are more social groups, player groups, dinners and weekend roll-up events. Our men's, ladies’ and junior sections are all thriving and we have a particularly large base of members not just from Surrey but from much of south west London as our transport links are so good.
Also, as we are still principally a 2-ball Club, play is always fast which allows members to get away after their game to do other things. The regular weekend roll-ups are a major part of Club life at Woking and ensure that if you turn up, you get a game!
If you wish to join and have connections to the Club via existing members, then the traditional route to membership may be open to you, but if you don’t already have such connections we have a very successful 6 month ‘temporary’ membership scheme which allows successful applicants to meet members and get support for a full membership application. We normally restrict applicants to those with a handicap of 20 or less for men, and 36 or less for ladies.
We also run a Ladies Academy each year in order to introduce new lady golfers to the game via a series of friendly coaching sessions. The 2020 Ladies Academy is not operational due to Covid-19, but we are taking names for the April 2021 intake - please use the email address below to indicate your interest in further information.
The Club has also committed to a temporary reduction in the Entrance Fee payable by lady candidates, in order to further strengthen our friendly and active ladies section.
